“Beware of Illness”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

The hotel was very nice for the first 2 days, and then we woke up with Legionaires Disease, from the mold in the A/C duct !!! We were sick in bed with a horrible bronchial illness for the remaining 3 days, and had to order room service. Still , really feeling too sick to travel, we had to get our flight anyway and return home, and stayed sick another week. At least we had a gorgeous suite with a fantastic oceanfront view . Choose another hotel to be able to enjoy your whole vacation, and not just part of it.

Found a good price for this trip & had a sister who went here a couple of years ago & enjoyed it so thought what the heck. Hotel is nicely designed with all rooms ocean facing (beautifull sunsets everynight) and everything is close by (don't have to walk 300 yards for dinner...). Getting a little run down but not bad, a/c does smell musty but open the patio doors for a bit & it's ok, wouldn't hurt to bring some kind of freshener though. Entertainment crew was alot of fun, tried very hard to get you involved. Not a very wild night life but that was fine with us. Buffet food was pretty good, snack bar same, Italian A le carte was really good, other one ok., Nightly entertainment was average to good. Pool was a good size & drink lineups were ok. Beach was ok, a bit dirty but some kind of smokin hot. Almost had to run to get to the damp sand. Had alot of big waves coming in & often had jelly fish getting washed ashore.so it wasn't easy to swim or use the kyaks. Did some snorkeling on the left side of the bay which was not bad except the waves pulled you in & out more than I liked. Had some neat little shops right in the hotel & some just down the beach that were as good a deal as you could find in town. About 1/2 Canadians & 1/2 Mexican people made up which was a little awkward with the language barrier (a sure wish I spoke spanish). Would go again if the price was right.

Our first trip to Manzanillo will not be our last. Beautiful lush fields to view on our ride from the airport to Tesoro. Our very clean 1 bedroom suite was perfect for my husband and I to have some privacy; and our 9 year old daughter to have her own space with a tv. Our rooms on the 5th floor had 3 deck doors all to our private deck overlooking the ocean. Nothing like having the ocean waves lull one to sleep. The beach was perfect and we were on it 99% of the time. Swimming was the best! Take the snorkel tour - so much fun and you don't have to snorkel to enjoy. The Boat ride and entertaining crew are worth it. The nightly show was family friendly and fantastic! Every person we met was friendly. Not sure who the 15% riff raff Cdns were but we are a family from Calgary who recommend this all-inclusive hotel.

Had a one room master suite. The bed is the second best we've had in Mexico.We have been going to Mexico for 20 years.Two large balconies overlooking the ocean was great.Food was reasonable. We did not think the a la carte's were anything special.I have to laugh at the people who say if you don't want to deal with Mexicans don't go to Mexico. I have been dealing with Mexicans for 20 years or more and they are usually very easy and respectful to get along with.Watching kids pee in the poolside showers, having our stuff moved while in the ocean, and the free for all at the buffet was a little much this trip. Maybe just bad luck this time. Does get crowded on the weekends as do most. Bus service is very easy to get around.Very clean and the staff was very good.Don't expect too much peace and quiet.Still it was good value for what we paid.

Room Tip: Stay on the lower levels. Never saw an elevator in 30 seconds!!! Maybe five minutes.

First let me say that the glitches were minor, Hotel was not at capacity so they would shut down one of the three elevators. That is when we found out that an overloaded elevator has an alarm and will not close the doors. But with a pleasant yet firm reminder at the front desk, the 3rd. elevator started up right away. Food was good as smorgs go the al a carte restaurant was a 3 out of five, good presentation but lacked quality. Stay with the smorg unless you want to experience a fantastic Spanish Coffee. Pool Great, Beach is Great, Beds are not as hard as most, folks found them very good.
Location is Beautiful. Bus stop at front of hotel about 55 cents Canadian (6 pesos). #8 Bus to Walmart then take a #1 Bus right into old town. , and the reverse back to the hotel. Best $1.10 Tour you can take! Monkeys fast food in old town is a must for the Fried Chicken Lover. about 30 times better than KFC and you can have a beer to-boot...
Locals are very friendly and eager to help best they can with very little or no English. Our restaurant Spanish got us around quite well. A real gem at the hotel is a very professional waiter named Fernado F. You can find him 6 days a week in the Palapa lunch snack/bar. The $20.00 (Canadian), Booze cruse leaves and returns just in front of the Palapa and provides an excellent late afternoon entertainment. The other guest at the hotel are 83% upper middle class Mexican Families. 2% Americans and 15% riffraff bargain hunting Canadian booze consumers.
Note, only bring currency ether Canadian or America in very good condition, "no corners cut off and not wrinkly or smudged, They will not take a chance on them" There are no little money exchanging Kiosks here in Manzanillo.
Take a big roll of American ones for tipping. A dollar tip can really go along way here.
40 pesos will take you by cab to the Flea Market Saturdays only, do it, it's a wonderful experience!
The Mexicans are a real pleasant experience and to witness wholesome family values I thought were extinct back in Canada, gave hope...
Hope this helps your decision, our group or 4 couples would go back in an instant...

We have just returned from a really fantastic week at the Tesoro. We have stayed at previous all-inclusive resorts including 3* to 5*s. We had read some of the trip advisors before we headed there and were a little apprehensive but upon arrival we were happily impressed. We booked a one-bedroom master suite and were thrilled with the spaciousness of it. We had a wrap around balcony and got to enjoy 6 absolutely breathtaking sunsets. The rooms were clean and well attended to by our cleaning staff. We left a $20 Peso note on our bed and our daughters' bed each day as a display of gratitude. Also we tipped the young gentleman who stocked our fridge daily and got an extra bottle of water and can of soda as there was 3 of us. The pool bar was fun and we found that the service from the bartenders and waitresses was great. Our favourite pool bar staff was Angel! He left a lasting impression. The food in the restaurants was good and you didn't have to eat the same thing daily. Good variety of choices. We ate in the A la Carte restaurant and the food was good but you need to book early in the morning with the concierge in order to get a reservation of your choice. The shows performed nightly were very entertaining and even more impressive as the performers are staff that have worked all day at the resort! JC and Miguel, the Transat reps, gave a great presentation the first day and I highly recommend attending to get some really great information about the things to do in the area. The beach was lovely. No jelly fish (as a previous Trip Advisor had complained about) and swimming in the surf was a blast. All the staff were wonderful, friendly, courteous and gracious. Those that left an impression are; Rico, Pepe, Ruben, Laura, Marianna, Brisa, Gardenia and Angel. We also met lots of really wonderful people who were staying at the resort. It is a very friendly environment and conducive to meeting people from all over. Its great for families of all ages. If you do any trips, we say the Ecotour Turtles & Mangroves as it's a great tour and if you're lucky, like we were, you will get to release baby turtles to the ocean that have been hatched in the safety of the refuge. We would highly recommend Tesoro resort and definitely will be back. Thank you Tesoro and see you again!

Room Tip: Recommend a master suite overlooking the beach - corner suite to take advantage of the sunsets

I have to say that was an awesome trip.
I have stayed at everything from a 1.5*-5* to actual castles in Europe. This place was great. We paid $940/person all inclusive and would do it again in a heart beat. the food was good, the bedrooms were kept clean, the hotel itself was very clean. The beach is great, (no cancun beach) but very decent. The booze keeps coming!!! I am surprised there was any booze left when we went home. The staff around the pool, pool bar, and restaurants were absolutely topnotch. They were sooooo nice and gracious. We are going to miss that place so much.

Pool bar talk to Santarnino. He's the best bartender in the joint. We gave him $10 at the beginning of the week and he had are drinks ready and waiting "every" time we went back for more. No lining up for us.
Laura, and Yolanda are the pool waitresses. Same thing. Everytime we blinked they had a drink ready for us.
Main floor restaurant Alfredo. Hes the best. Always on it. Had our coffee and orange juice at the table before we sat down.
Activities (pool side) Francesco. He gives a better deal than the hotel activities center. Just remember whatever activity you do take your own, water, booze and food.

Say hello to the lovely ladies: Marianna, Brisa, Gardenia, and Pepe

Go with the right attitude. If your a snob stay somewhere else.

Thank you Tesoro for a most amazing time!!!
